I did not realize just how ineffective Campag. sidepull brakes are until I put Shimano dual pivots on the Bianchi. Yes, they can be a bit touchy, like power brake assist on a car, but they can actually enable me to stop quickly when I need to. My scariest experience was with Shimano pads on the Campag. sidepulls. The combo looked fabulous, but was far worse than the KoolStop pads on the same calipers.

These are 54mm long and are supposed to fit your holders.

These are the triple compound that are supposed to be the best. Black, salmon, and grey. The grey compound is what is used for BMX trick riding that stops instantly. Let me know which ones you want or how many.
I will send them out as soon as I hear from you. If you need them fast, I can send priority. Smiles, MH

You can find good substitute adjuster O-rings at many hardware stores like ACE or True Value, sometimes even HD and Lowes, maybe Harbor Freight too.

I have found very good match several times at Parkrose and Winks hardware over the years, Parkrose stocks several in same and varying diameter and thickness.

Some even fit and look better than originals.

Without ordering and waiting.

Those places do not exist in Southern California. SoCal is a Lowes, Home Depot, Ace hardware desert.

Trying to play along at home, this is VO holders and Kool Stop blocks from Dave? I may be in the same situation soon, I have Record calipers without holders for an upcoming build. Thanks!

I did that ride last year and had a great time! Looks like you were part of the V.I.P first wave?

Oh, last year those helmet covers were for VIP.
Glad those pads worked... for a long time I couldn't bring myself to use anything but black Campagnolo pads. I finally compromised and got the Kool Stop salmon pads that fit the holders. Seem to be a little better, but I have the ceramic coated Mavic Open 4 rims so that might affect any type of pads.
